Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese tradition, used to help promote overall health, and has been proven to be beneficial with numerous different physical ailments and mood conditions, including but not limited to: headaches, nausea, unhealthy heartrate, addiction, anxiety, depression, concentration, insomnia, and more. Acupuncture can be successful in treating, both the short and long term. Acupuncture can immediately reduce current symptoms, such as feelings of stress, anxiety, and sadness. This can be extremely helpful and encouraging regarding teens’ ability to focus and engage in their treatment process. In the longer term, research has shown that in instances of substance abuse, Acupuncture can also drastically reduce the likelihood of teens relapsing, and can also be extremely helpful in improving the body’s overall ability to function optimally. One of the ways Acupuncture does this is by serving to balance and restore the body’s numerous systems. Some examples of this include: helping restore the nervous system and cortisol levels, creating hormonal balance, addressing neurotransmitter imbalance, improving heartrate and circulation, improving healthy appetite, and more.
While Acupuncture is much newer in the United States than in China, where it’s implemented in hospitals and doctors’ offices, as part of basic medical protocol, it’s continuing to be used more and more, as part of Western medicine techniques. Acupuncture has been proven to have positive effects on people in numerous ways, and to be incorporated into treatment for many different illnesses and ailments. For many teens, we find that Acupuncture is an excellent, natural treatment option to assist in teens’ health and overall well-being, helping to reduce current symptoms and reduce stress in their lives.
